Today's outing started on wide open and easy to navigate terrain...
|Laying fresh tracks across a beautiful snow covered meadow at Rabbit Ears Pass.|
From "well laid plans" to "oops, where are we?!?" was the day's adventure. I thought we got on the right snowmobile trail but, instead, the trail ended in the trees with no obvious direction to continue. I figured, "Well, we are just a bit off track, so if we keep going up through the trees we'll eventually reconnect with the wide snowmobile trail." Hmmm....
|Oops! This is certainly NOT a snowmobile trail! I'm not supposed to be higher than|
Max & Zorro on skis with a huge dip between us!
|"Okay, if you say so. But we've had a blast doing our own thing in the trees!" says my happy|
and agreeable partners.
Back out of the forest and into the meadow where we started...
|"Must cool off after breaking trail in the trees!" demonstrates silly Max.|
"I think I see the real snowmobile trail. Let's try it again!" suggests 'ready to go again' Zorro.
An interesting day getting lost in the forest and then following our tracks back out: 7.1 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 144 days on the trails covering 1207.9 miles with 128,600 feet of elevation climbed.
